LifeFacts: Substance Abuse

Educating students about the indiscriminate use of drugs is a critical step toward abuse prevention. Provide students with basic drug awareness information essential for learning the “refusal skills” needed for coping with the invasion of drugs. Include lessons about drugs in daily living situations including at home, in school, or in the community. Teach the “facts of life” about the dangers of substance abuse and chemical dependency. But most of all, teach students how to avoid drugs!

This program presents basic information on chemical dependency and the dangers associated with substance abuse in 19 comprehensive lessons. It clearly identifies substances with the potential for abuse, and the dangerous effects of each including the destructive impact on family and work. The program explores the symptoms of addiction and effective use of treatment programs. Over one third of the program is devoted to developing “refusal skills” so students will learn self-assertion strategies that work.

The Sequenced Curriculum Guide and follow-up lesson worksheets keep your students on task. Pretest and post-tests help you identify needs and measure growth. The LifeFacts: Substance Abuse curriculum provides all the essential information and tools you need for instructing individuals with special needs about the dangers of substance abuse.

Using Humor to Teach Social Skills

Humor = Retention

We believe you learn best when you laugh. By making the classroom experience more comfortable and enjoyable, humor can make teaching and learning more effective, especially for the K12 segment. At Stanfield, we use humor as an integral part of our curricula.

If you as a speaker don’t help your audience to remember your lessons, then you’re wasting everyone’s time. Humor… can help accomplish that needed retention…
